Prince Harry and Mutsu reunited at the opening of the childrens centre
Prince Harry in Africa, which broadcasts on ITV Choice (DStv 123) on Thursday, 20
July 2017 at 20h00, follows HRH Prince Harry on his return to Lesotho to continue the
work of Sentebale, the charity he set up in the country a decade ago.
Prince Harry first travelled to Lesotho 12-years ago, shadowed by Bradby. It was
there, after seeing the countrys disadvantaged children, that the Prince decided to
follow in the humanitarian footsteps of his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, and set
up Sentebale (translated as Forget Me Not), which provides care, support and
education to youth affected by HIV and AIDS in Lesotho and Botswana.
This film - just one of the shows in ITV Choice's Royal Season this July - sees Prince
Harry set off on an unforgettable adventure, where cameras will bear witness to his
travels through the beautiful and challenging scenery to remote locations with his
deeply personal aim of discovering the stories that he wants to tell to the world. The
film will also capture the moment that Prince Harry is reunited with Mutsu, a local
teenager who the Prince met on his first visit to Lesotho, and with whom he has since
remained in regular contact, both knowing firsthand what is was like growing up
without a parent.
Prince Harry said: The last 10 years that Ive been coming here, every single time we
turn up somewhere, theyre always singing, its never shake hands, its sing, dance,
embarrass yourself. Everywhere I look I can hear songs from 10 years ago in my
head. To me, thats what this country is about, you just feel welcome everywhere you
Featuring footage of Prince Harry getting his hands dirty helping out with the charitys
work on the ground and interacting with the local children, the film will discover how
the Prince has come to have such an understanding of their problems and how this led
him to set up his own initiative, with the aim of supporting orphans and vulnerable
children and helping them through education.
Also, in an interview with broadcaster Tom Bradby, the Prince will reveal his motives
for setting up the charity, his passion for the future of his work in Africa, and how hes
determined to use his unique position to do good.
